Naomi is the daughter of the President’s youngest son, Hunter, and his ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle, and a partner at DC law firm Arnold & Porter. The bride’s parents met while working with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Portland, Ore. Naomi is named after the President’s eldest daughter who was involved in a car accident in 30 Died at the age of one, with his first wife Nella.
The bride reportedly played an important role in her grandfather’s political career. In 2018 she calls a family meeting where she, her two sisters and her cousins urge him to run for president against Donald Trump.
Peter, an associate at the National Security Law Center in Georgetown, is also politically active. He studied political communication at George Washington University, served as a White House intern during President Obama’s administration, and worked on Hillary Clinton’s campaign. He grew up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the son of William Neal and Mary C. Neal, both physicians. (Like the Bidens, the Neals suffered tragedy; Willie, one of Peter’s two brothers, was killed by a car while roller skating.)
Newlyweds first File created by mutual friends of 2018. Naomi was in law school at Columbia University at the time, and New York City was the location of the first date and subsequent courtship.
Now the couple lives on the third floor of the White House with their dog Charlie. Peter proposed to 2021 in September in Wyoming wearing an emerald cut diamond ring designed by Shah & Shah Distinctive Jewelers in Washington DC “He took her two sisters from college They came down and they looked at everything,” jeweler Colin Shah told the Post . “He was very sweet throughout. He wanted to make sure he was getting a beautiful, high-quality stone. He wanted to make sure it was something she would love.” Peter also incorporated his grandmother’s wedding ring into the bride’s wedding jewelry. According to Shah, the band was melted down and added to Naomi’s wedding ring. “He wanted part of his family to be inherited into theirs.”
The event kicked off with a rehearsal dinner on Friday night, with the bride wearing what designer Danielle Frankel described as a “transition look.” There was a top bodice, a tailored jacket and trousers, all in the same satin fabric, and a ruched tulle cape decorated with lace flowers. The four-piece keeps the bride evolving throughout the evening and sets the visual tone for the weekend.
Following this morning’s ceremony on the South Lawn, an intimate luncheon dinner for the family and wedding was held in the State Dining Room of the White House. Tonight at 7:30 pm, guests will once again gather to celebrate the happy couple with cake and dancing.
